I have Hyper-v setup on a Windows 2008R2 Enterprise server.
I have some virtual servers there too.
I have a couple of USB drives that I have plugged into the Parent machine. I want these 2 to be seen as external hard disks to all the Virtual machines. I am planing to use these as backup drives.
I am trying to achieve this by adding the 2 USB disks as Virtual Hard Disks under the Hyper-V manager.
There are however 3 Disk type options.
1. "Fixed Size"
2. "Dynamically Expanding"
I was hoping the option 3 "Differencing" ( as in the screenshot ) would be the best ?
Is this a "safe" option ? I don't want my Host machine to have issues if I choose the wrong option.
and if anyone can explain what these optoins are - that would be great too.
